The problem is with the engine bore and the cylinder, either the engine might get ceased or it may warned out. and in the mean time check the battery and other electrical circuit along with the engine oil for the better usage.

My kx125, can still start it and ride it without a lot of compression, it only gets compression about half way towards the bottom when kicking it, but it does start.. Any ideas??


Hi, Colin you may have a kicking gear engagement issue, do a compression test when the engine is at operating temperature should be around 125-130 psi. for more information about your question and valuable "FREE" downloads that you will need please visit the websites below.

Kick start


Run a compression check. If it's low, solve that problem first.

Can an 87 fxrs be kick started?


I've never heard such a thing...

But you have to have a kick starter first and I don't recall 87's having one. Correct me if I'm wrong or if the trans has been changed out then yes you could have one. But I've never heard of Harley's starting on the second compression stroke. Plus the modern after market ignition systems used without kick start transmissions are the same ones used with custom scoots that have a modern trans with the old look of the kick starter... Although with these high compression engines, compression releases are common place because neither the starter or kick starter could crank one without...

Hi have a Husqvarna 410 2000 got spark fuel back fires but wont start checked flywheel is on right valves rock at top dead centre ... ?? but wont start ? kick start only tho ?


If the valves "rock" at TDC, the piston is at TDC EXHAUST, not TDC COMPRESSION. Chances are the engine is flooded. Install a fresh spark plug and go easy on twisting the throttle when starting the bike. Be sure the battery is in good condition. Push the kick lever to just past TDC compression then give a strong kick. Don't try to kick start with the piston going upward on the compression stroke. Be sure the air cleaner is not dirty and you have good gas. Please rate my answer. Thanks!

I have a '01 WR 426, one the thing is a bear to


The starting procedure is... Kick it over slowely untill it stops, pull in the compression release lever and kick just a little more to get it past "Top dead center". (An inch or two) Then let the kick starter return all the way up, .... and give it a smooth firm kick. Not a ****.

Its getting dam near impossible to kick start, it will start after 30 or so kicks, any ideas?


Could be low compression due to head gasket leak, worn piston rings. Or bad spark due to dirty plug, wrong gap, plug breaking down, lead or cap breaking down, ignition fault. Choked air filter, fuel filter.
Try these in easiest order I.E. remove air filter and see if it starts easier, do a compression test, cahnge plug, lead cap. Check the fuel filter.
I am sure it's a simple solution.(high milage engines tend to be difficult to start so take this into account)

Kick start has no compression but runs fine once i get it going


Does it feel like yhe kick is even engaging and turning the crankshaft? Are you full stroking/kicking it over or short stroking it? when cold, are you using the choke. I suggest taking a compression test when it feels as if it hs no compression It could be undersized piston, rings, or a simple. good luck

Very hard to kick start


i dont know what your timing is relevant to flicking the compression switch and kicking, but get the engine to the compression stroke and then as you go to kick it hard, flick the switch at that moment. timing is everything. i had an old yamaha tt 500 that kicked back so hard my foot slipped off the kick start and kick lever came up and took the skin off my shin.. it took quit a bit of time to get the timing but once i did, it was easy.. hope this helps.

Kickstart problem


Hi crazy

Your bike has an automatic de-compression lever that helps when starting. This mechanism will make it feel like the bike has low compression. If it is maladjusted, it may be causing the problem

check here for adjustment procedures to be sure that it is set up correctly.

Other than that, low compression pretty much means top end rebuild.
